4 days in August!

Hi, my family and I are visiting the Sporades Islands in August. We would like to stay for 4 nights on Skiathos then move on to Skopelos. As our time is limited on Skiathos I would be grateful for any recommendations for where to stay and what to do. We have two boys, 13 and 11 who would like to try out some watersports, we love the beach/pool and we would like to do a little bit of exploring. Near town would also be good. I have been looking at the Angeliki Hotel but they will not take any bookings until March so need a back up plan if they are unavailable.

Many thanks!!

Hi, I think Angeliki would be a good choice. Basic but on a beach with water sports and close enough to walk into town.

The Oasis maybe an alternative choice, closer to the airport but I'm sure your boys would enjoy watching the planes come in to land.

Skiathos is a great place for a couple of boys to explore, I'd have loved it if my parents had taken me at that age.

The big difference for me between Skiathos and Skopelos is that Skiathos has more going on and has many many sandy beaches on a good reliable bus route whereas Skopelos is quiet and the beaches are almost all pebbly to rocky.

You might want to bear this in mind.

Good Luck, Gary.

Hi Lizedd

Am a bit mystified about you not being able to book with the Angeliki Beach Hotel because I know they are taking bookings at the moment. If you do book with them, what a wise choice, you will not be disappointed.

If you need any more help, please send me a private message.

Best Wishes
